In a world where everything is about development and looking ahead, it can sometimes be good to stop and reflect on where we come from.
There are an incredible number of photos, paintings and illustrations in archives around the world.
These are artists who hundreds of years ago put their soul into creating fantastic works and today many of these are forgotten in an archive.
What if Bauer, Strindberg or Billmark knew that, over 100 years later, their motifs would be some of our most adored works and decorate the walls of hundreds of people around the world.
This is exactly what we at Historly want to do, we want to give life to old art and photographs while helping our customers put something on the wall that means a little more than just decoration.
Behind the images on our site, there are hundreds of hours of research, retouching and design to give the works the justice that they deserve.
It is not easy to navigate the many archives that exist around the world and sometimes we may have to go through thousands of pictures to find a real grain of gold.
Once we have found an image that we like, the work of restoring and retouching the image begins where damage is removed and colors are restored. This can sometimes take days.
Finally, work begins on the most important step - the story behind the image. For us, the picture is just part of the experience. Most pictures have a story that is worth highlighting. That is what makes us unique and why we can say that we offer more than just posters.
We are very proud to only work with paper from Hahnemühle, one of the world's leading manufacturers of fine art paper.
The paper is called Hahnemühle Matt Fibre 200g and has a warm tone which gives the motifs a fantastic depth.
If you handle our posters correctly, you can count on them lasting up to 60 years.
